For a short trip in Austria, I decided to go to Salzburg and Innsbruck. I wish I have gone to Vienna too. Perhaps I will be one day back in the land of mountains and the land of rivers, Austria.
Salzburg is one of Austria tourist destination and famous as the birthplace of legendary Mozart and the setting of classic movie, The Sound of Music. I have lived for 10 years in New Zealand and only recently managed to watch the movie after pressure from friends. Being in English country, I felt that it is a requirement to watch the movie. And I love the movie.
Salzburg is also popular because it is a nice city with the view of Eastern Alps and beautiful baroque architecture on the Altstadt (Old town) side of the city. New town and the Salzach river that divide the old town and new town are (in my humble opinion) nice place to walk through.
